Local deployment

This deployment method is intended for on-premises installations. Create or download an installation package and allow access to it via via a shared folder, flash drive or email.


The installer package must be installed by an Administrator or a user with Administrator privileges.


We recommend that you only use local deployment if you have a small network (up to 50 computers). For larger networks, you can Deploy ESET Management Agent using GPO or SCCM.

Local deployment can be performed in three ways:

Create Agent (and ESET security product) installer (Windows only)

Create Agent Live Installer (Windows, Linux, macOS)

Download Agent from ESET website (Windows, Linux, macOS)

Keep in mind that the user will be able to work with Certificates when creating installers. A user must have Use permission for Certificates with access to the static group where certificates are contained. If a user wants to deploy ESET Management Agent, it is necessary to be assigned Use permission for Certification Authority that the actual server certificate is signed.
